I started this book pre-pandemic (and finished it during) and I do wonder how the author would have changed things for our current Zoom world.

Regardless, it is  a timely book as many organisations have been investing more in L&D this year and this is a good resource for professionals in this space.
I would recommend for any HR/L&D leads looking for a reference on the value of workplace learning and ideas for implementation.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review.

Working in IT projects, they never come without change and learning impacts. Given the focus on digital transformation is deeply rooted in enabling business transformation, I see the same parallel and urgency for change in "Driving Performance through Learning." Andy Lancaster starts with driving the clear case for action.

As a non-Learning & Development (L&D) professional, I found the book to have a tremendous amount of concepts and frameworks. Many of the methods and questions highly align with user-centered design and design thinking processes - ensuring you tie back to the root cause of what you're trying to change, and relate it in the most concise and meaningful way to the person you are training.

With so much content, at times it seems like overload. Perhaps more detail and less examples of tools would help to keep readers learning and focused. I did appreciate the concise case studies, and if those were built out more, it could also help to drive concept absorption.

This is a great book to get you started if you are thinking about how to guide people through a change. "Driving Performance through Learning" can be a key resource to help you figure out how to approach a change. 

I was provided an advance copy of this book through netgalley. Thank you to netgalley and the publisher, Kogan Page, for providing the copy. Thoughts and opinions in this review are my own.
